The tanks can be mounted to a rigid truck chassis or skeletal trailer in many different configurations based on customer requirements. The largest combination of Omni Tankers used in Australia is a B-Double tanker, referred to as a B-Train in many countries, with a total volume of 40,000 litres across three tanks. The tanks are type approved according to Australian Standard 2809 “Road Tank Vehicles for Dangerous Goods”.
The tank volumes range from 12,600 to 15,000 litres. Greater overall transport volumes can be achieved through the use of multiple tanks on a trailer or through custom tank designs. Generally, the tanks contain two separate sealed compartments, each at half of the aforementioned total tank volume, to comply with maximum allowable small compartment tank volume based on Australian standards.
The tanks are suitable for transporting highly corrosive chemicals such as sodium hypochlorite, hydrochloric acid, sulphuric acid, ferric chloride, ferrous chloride, caustic soda, and many others, without degradation of the liner.
